Simmons is steps-conscious. 

At College there is no girl who is not aware of the 
five miles of steps leading up to Library A. At 
quarter of nine in the morning this distance some- 
how becomes even longer, the ascent more arduous. 
A girl could be elected to the presidency of Stu-G 
if she put into effect her platform of "What this 
College needs, my good friends, is more elevators." 

Between classes the backsteps become a refuge 
from the hydrogen sulfide of the second floor and 
the clattering of typewriters on the first. There the 
Simmons girl takes a quick look at the notes for the 
exam next hour, lights up a Camel, pulls out her 
compact to make amends for the last hectic class, 
exchanges gossip with her neighbors, and on her 
way back, snatches a bite of the brownie saved 
from lunch. 

On campus the steps of Evans are the scene of 
fascinating activity, particularly just prior to one- 
thirty. According to one housemother the tender 
farewells enacted there make "any movie seem like 
mere child's play!"

Like H2 and SO4, like Amos and Andy, commuter 
and dorm students mix gregariously after hours as 
well as during class time. 

On Wednesday evenings during the good weath- 
er of the spring and fall, every Simmonsite is in- 
vited to participate in Step-Singing, one of the 
oldest and dearest of Simmons' traditions. Under- 
classmen gather at the South Hall Colonnade to 
wait for the Seniors to come "marching, marching 
onward" from the North Hall doorway. When the 
Seniors have assumed their places on the steps, the 
four classes entertain each other with "sister- 
class" songs, with ditties composed especially for 
the occasion by the Songleaders, and with old 
favorites like "We're Just the Girls from Good Old 

Everybody gets together with the Faculty for 
Field Day, which is the only all-college athletic 
competition observed at Simmons. Those on the 
sidelines are kept almost as busy as the players on 
the diamond — running for more cokes, cheering, 
trying their luck at the games of chance on ICC's 
Carnival Row.

You are StU'G'\.. Student Government 

By Jean Bratton 

In carrying out the general aims of the Associa- 
tion this year, Stu-G has buik a flexible but well- 
defined program around the tenet "YOU are 
Student Government." We have frankly tried to 
make you Stu-G conscious in the belief that a 
familiarity with the aims, organization, and activi- 
ties of Student Government would bring home to 
every student the importance of the part she plays 
in the Association of Simmons. 

Through the media of News, posters, the emer- 
gency blackboard, and open meetings, a plan was 
developed to keep you informed of all Student 
Government activities, and to give you every op- 
portunity to voice your opinions. YOU decided 
the cotirse of Stu-G action this year. 

Our agenda were wide. In answer to a call from 
the Prince students, a club was established to serve 
as a link between the retailing school and 300 The 
Fenway, and to draw the graduates and under- 
classmen closer together. 

After a careful survey of student opinion, the 

Reflection and expression

is self-government by you and for you 

Council voted to raise the activities" fee to five 
dollars for each student in order to meet increased 
operating costs of the organizations benefitting 
from the fee and to permit them to serve the student 
body more effectively. As the work of organizing 
curriculum committees in the school was com- 
pleted, the Council prepared a formal report of the 
curriculum system. 

To supplement our traditional events of Olde 
English Dinner, Student-Faculty teas, Bib Party, 
Field Day, and May Party, the Council sponsored 
a successful Christmas formal. 

In December, our Junior Representatives, Mar- 
gery Klein and Mary Kerr, traveled to Chicago 
where preparations were being made for a Na- 
tional Students' Organization. This and subse- 
quent conferences were so publicized that when 
the time came for Simmons to decide whether to 
join, each student knew the issue at hand. 

Summing up the year's activities, with emphasis 
on the central theme of our program, we published 
a Stu-G pamphlet to illustrate how the whole of 
Stu-G is equal to the parts of your attention, 
cooperation, and participation.

Imparting strength to the aims of the central 
Council, Dormitory Council, under Vice-President 
Miriam Colvin, worked to become a more active, 
vital, and representative part of dormitory life. 
Dorm Board checked carelessness in the observance 
of dormitory rules, and held regular meetings as an 
effective judiciary unit. 

Honor Board, under Chairman Barbara Doe, 
developed a program to bring home to every 
student the significance of the honor system she is 
privileged to possess. All graduates and transfer 
students were informed of the system. The Faculty 
was asked to cooperate in carrying out its princi- 
ples. A special effort was made to reach the Fresh- 
men at College Opportunities, and a system of 
pledges instituted to be signed by each student at 
the beginning of the year. This way, and by means 
of News, posters, and signs. Honor Board rounded 
out its efforts to make every girl conscious of the 
honor system. 

The Social Activities Committee, superintended 
by Chairman Caryl Key, made Simmons' social 
life a round of headline events. Featured were teas 
at Evans, an all-campus dance, a ski trip to North 
Conway, Simmons' Night at Pops, and the Stu-G 
Christmas formal at the Copley-Plaza — all de- 
signed to unite the students in a more closely-knit 
social group.

Participation in Simmon's activities is regula- 
ted by the point system, and our voucher, Martha 
Cummings, determines the number and group of 
offices we may hold. Reaching these officers and 
other students keeps a volunteer staff busy on tele- 
phone duty in Student Officers' Room. 

An unusually large group of transfer students 
came to Simmons this year, and the transfer com- 
mittee, under the direction of Mary Jane Thomas, 
orientated them to Simmons with a week of teas, 
dances, and a Dutch Treat Supper. 

Another important student committee, the 
World Student Service Fund headed by Constance 
Marshall, solicited at Simmons in behalf of the 
students in war-torn countries. 

The Assembly Suggestion Committee, under the 
direction of Virginia Congdon, worked closely with 
the Faculty in planning a varied program of as- 
semblies, and this year emphasized greater student 
participation in the programs.

Jane Louise Mesick, Ph.D., Litt.D. 

Always behind us. 

"Candlelight in the refectory? The Dean 
must be coming!" Upperclass campus entertains 
the Dean at dinner many times during the course 
of the year, and the presence of candles and flowers 
on the table is the sure clue to the fact that Miss 
Mesick is in the vicinity. 

Though the light is dim, the girls around the 
Dean can still see the glint of interest in her eyes 
as they quickly dart around the hall, acknowledg- 
ing smiles and nods with a friendly twinkle. At 
after-dinner coffee those same eyes are never still — 
they study each girl as she speaks, and they shine 
as Miss Mesick entertains with tales of her myriad 
memories: the "matches" she has manoeuvred; 
her adventures with her car; committees and 
boards she has served on; her trips back to her 
Alma Mater, Mt. Holyoke .... 

Although campus girls have this extra oppor- 
tunity to get to know their Dean, commuters be- 
come familiar with her as well — at conferences, and 
in the receiving line of the many formals given 
during the college year. 

Raconteur, match-maker, counselor, friend. 
This is Jane Louise Mesick, Dean of Simmons.

Beatley was busier than ever this year when he 
toured the country speaking at alumnae gatherings 
in behalf of the 50th Anniversary Appeal. Sim- 
mons could send no better representative for its 
cause than Mr. Beatley, whose forethought, energy, 
and genialty have been observed in play at Sim- 
mons as well as during his travels. 

President Beatley came to Student Government 
himself two years ago when it became necessary 
to raise the tuition in order to allow the College 
to maintain its high standing. He presented and 
explained the plan to the Council, inviting ques- 
tions, and giving rebuttals which satisfied the 
student representatives. 

The President finds time for hobbies as well as 
for duties. A well-rounded man, his zealous man- 
ner may stem from his summertime hou,sepainting 
or from his model railroad penchant. 

Simmons salutes President and Mrs. Beatley, 
genial hosts each year to Stu-G and ICC. Simmons 
is growing because of them. This year's graduating 
class hopes that they will soon see their plans for 
the new Simmons going into effect.

A SHIP EQ^uiPPED TO SAIL is land-lockcd without a 
captain; and a school stocked with students is dead- 
locked without a competent administration to run 
it. But Simmons has the administration, and by it, 
is run with a maximum of efficiency and a mini- 
mum of waste. 

We present with pride — 

Dr. George M. Steiger, Professor of History, Chair- 
man of the Division of Social Studies, and, most 
important to graduate students, Dean of the Grad- 
uate Division. . . .Dr. Steiger is the link between the 
student's previous college and Simmons — he plans 
courses, counts credits, and counsels with under- 
standing and wisdom. 

Air. Richmond A. Bachelder, known formally as 
Treasurer arid Comptroller, known more intimately 
as the man who collects our tuition. ...This year 
the Comptroller's Office had its face lifted to 
accommodate the added work of straightening out 
veterans' tuitions, cadet nurses, and the complica- 


friends on the Fens 

tions of income taxes. Cheerful Mr. Bachelder is 
glad to unravel complications. 

Aliss Doris M. Sutherland, Director of Admission and 
Guidance.... Miss Sutherland is the interviewer of 
prospective freshmen, and once they are accepted, 
she is their guide. "College Opportunities," under 
her direction, is the course all freshmen take for 
beneficial guidance. 

Miss Alice L. Hopkins, Director of the Library.... 
Omniscient Miss Hopkins is the one who has an 
answer for every question. 

Miss Anna M. Hanson, Director of Placement.... 
The lady to whom all seniors, and undergraduates 
seeking part-time jobs, turn. An interview with 
Miss Hanson prefaces the future. 

Dr. Joseph G. Needham, Assistant Professor of 
Psychology, and Simmons' Vice-President.... VoYiui&r 
Dr. Needham, who returned to Simmons this year 
after a leave of absence for war service, is a much 
sought-after man-about-school.

Dr. Erna Anderson, Acting Director of Health.... 
Better known to us as "the Doctor," she examines, 
diagnoses, and soothes our ailment, whether a 
headache, a cold, or a cut knee. Dr. Anderson is 
always ready with a smile as well as an aspirin, and 
the smile often does more for mid-term lethargy 
than the aspirin. 

Miss Beverly Sweatt, Executive Secretary of the 
Alumnae Association. ...Miss Sweatt's office is the 
mainstay in the 50th Anniversary Appeal headed 
by Mr. Vaughn. The Alumnae Review, stressing the 
needs of the new Simmons in the Appeal, is super- 
vised by Miss Sweatt and her assistants. Graduates 
of Simmons are never forgotten — they are Miss 
Sweatt's first interest. 

Airs. Pearl S. Young, Director of Public Relations. . . . 
Clippings, press releases, radio programs, and all 
Simmons doings are Mrs. Young's concern. 
Though the energetic publicity director is not 
located in the main hall, nothing escapes her notice.

Mrs. Young hears all, knows all, and tells all the

Miss Ruth H. Danielson, Director of Residence of the 
Brookline Avenue Campus. Mother Confessor to 
dorm students, Miss Danielson supervises their 
living quarters, food, and social life. Hostess at 
Evans Hall, Miss Danielson has accomplished the 
almost impossible — the conversion of a beautiful 
but austere hall into a home. 

Mr. James A. Vaughn, Executive Director of the 
^oth Anniversary Appeal. The man of the year is 
Mr. Vaughn, for his name was spoken more often, 
his $3,500,000 goal struggled for more earnestly, 
his tenacity praised more vociferously than any 
other project of the year. Mrs. Averill Loh, student 
chairman of the drive, worked many hours with 
Mr. Vaughn on a publicity campaign for student 
contributions to the drive. Radio programs, the 
senior pledge presentation to President Beatley at 
Olde English Dinner, the undergraduate campaign, 
the President's report sent to alumnae, and the 
Alumnae Review were all part of the concerted effort 
to raise the money to "build us up."

There is music in the air here in our microcosm 


Hitting a new high, eighty members comprise 
the Glee Club, one of the most active clubs at 
Simmons. Twenty-four girls organized it from the 
college choir in 1908, and with the Mandolin Club 
formed the Musical Association. 

They worked hard to learn new songs and 

harmony, but Glee Club members say it was worth 
the effort, for they were trained in individual voice 
technique and in group singing. 

This year, the Club started its round of special 
events with the annual Christmas College Vesper 
Service on December 15. They sang familiar carols 
at the Christmas Pageant with orchestral accom- 
paniment, and then the student body joined in. 
Later the club traveled out to Haverhill for their 
yearly concert. Concerts with Massachusetts Insti- 
tute of Technology and Worcester Polytechnic 
Institute followed in the Spring. Glee Club ended 
its 1 946-47 activities as the spirited Commencement 
chorus on June 9. 

The Club is one organization that doesn't 
worry about members attending, for Simmons 
vocalists are eager to participate, and are interested 
in learning their parts. As in all artistic work, 
practice and enthusiasm are imperative, but the 
satisfaction Glee Club-ers got from their entertain- 
ment was their reward. 

Officers for the year were: President, Helen 
Murray; Secretary, Kay Taft; Treasurer, Doris 
Downing; Concert Manager, Lorelle Lundeberg; 
Business Manager, Virginia Congdon; and Libra- 
rians, Jane Buxton and Jane Church.

In defense of their claim, Orchestra fans relate 
that its express purpose is to provide entertainment 
for all who like music. 

Long after 4:10, when commuters rush for buses 
and trains, and dorm students trek along the Fen- 
way, bound to dash off just one letter before dinner, 
members of the Orchestra, under the direction of 
Mr. Gordon Joslin, are practicing new numbers or 
brushing up on old favorites to be ready for their 
many special events. 

The eighteen members this year played for the 
Freshman Reception; the tense minutes during 
intermission at Competitives when soothing music 
was greatly appreciated; Olde English Dinner 
where music added to the atmosphere of the 
baronial hall; nurses' Capping, to give to the 
momentous occasion that added touch of dignity; 
the moving Christmas Pageant where only candle- 
light and a musical background could give the age- 
old story the appropriate religious mood; and 
finally, at the Senior Reception in June. 

The Orchestra, as we know it now, was or- 
ganized in 1943. Before that it was part of the 
Musical Association, in which, to quote Mic '40, 

"one hundred forty girls felt moved to sing and 
play under expert guidance." 

Officers for 1946-47 were: President, Betty- 
Grant; Vice-President, Barbara Johnson; Secre- 
tary, Eleanor Archibald; Treasurer, Velma 
Thompson; Librarian, Claire Sullivan.

Vive la France! The membership of Le Cercle 
Fran9ais includes thirty girls who have been really 
active. They've sewed. They've knitted. They've 
volunteered service at American Relief for France. 
Even now, after the long war years, these few loyal 
members still contribute time and energy to reviv- 
ing war-worn France. 

The club was founded for students interested in 
France and her people. Membership is open to all 
students attending the college. A knowledge of 
French is not necessary. 

This year, Le Cercle Frangais elected Louisa 
Cogswell as representative to Le Cercle Frangais 
Inter-Universitaire. Designed to promote interest 
in France, this inter-collegiate organization com- 
bines social activities with relief work. 

French Club members held a Christmas party at 
which Mrs. Andre Morize discussed French 
Christmas customs. Refreshments, which included 
little French pastries, were served. 

Monthly meetings for 1946-47 were varied and

interesting, and reflected the basic aim of Le Cercle 
Fran9ais. Guest speakers included a French par- 
atrooper and a war bride, both of whom are now 
living in the United States. Other meetings were 
devoted to slides of France and French art, and to 
French movies. 

The most important and worthiest activity of 
French Club members was the "adoption" of 
French war orphans. To "adopt" a child, members 
applied in groups to American Relief for France 
for the names of needy orphans. The girls pledged 
two packages a month to their children, including 
food, clothing, and comforts. Further, they con- 
tributed to the support of needy children. Members 
have established close relationships with their 
"adopted" children. With each letter they reap the 
reward of unselfish giving. 

Officers of Le Cercle Fran^ais for 1946-47 were: 
President, Lucie Cottle; Vice-President, Mary 
Massa; Secretary, Patricia Russo; Treasurer, 
Maudie Andrews; Advisor, Miss Marian Bowler.

Their interest lies South of the Border. They 
are the Pan American girls. They have fun. They 
have parties. They have dances. They have meet- 
ings. They have men. But, they also have a serious 
purpose, the goal of One World. 

Pan-American attempts to promote friendliness 
and understanding between North and South 
America, by presenting opportunities for North and 
South Americans to get together frequently and to 
learn about one another. 

The club was founded in 1941 to satisfy student 
interest in Latin American peoples and culture. 
Meetings have been kept vital through Latin 
American speakers and movies. 

Their activity, however, is by no means com- 
pletely academic. They have provided opportuni- 
ties for students to meet South Americans and to 
talk informally with them. A membership of over 
a hundred attests their success. 

Members need not be Spanish students, nor need 
they speak the language. All that Pan American

requires is a genuine interest in Latin American 
civilization, and a desire to promote friendliness 
and understanding. 

During 1946-47 Pan-American held regular 
monthly meetings, each one featuring a Latin 
American speaker. After a brief lecture, during 
refreshments, students gathered about in groups 
and chatted informally with their guest. 

The December meeting was devoted to a Christ- 
mas party held at the College at which the Pan 
American Clubs of the Massachusetts Institute of 
Technology, Harvard, and Tufts were guests. 
Members discussed South American Christmas 
traditions^ and sang Spanish carols. 

Because dancing is an old Latin-American as well 
as North American custom, Pan-American spon- 
sored two informal dances this year — a fall and a 
Valentine Fiesta — both at the Commander. 

Club officers for 1946-47 were: President, Eliza- 
beth Donnelly; Vice-President, Maureen Mark- 
ham; Secretary-Treasurer, Rosamond Muldoon.

"I KNEW HER WHEN..." you'll say one day, for 
who knows what Bergmans and La Galliennes may 
rise from the ranks of Dramatic Club members? 
While the club has no professional aims, nothing 
can stop a stage-bound Sally from using it as a 
stepping-stone to bright lights. 

At any rate, there was plenty of experience to 
be had this year in acting, directing, and back- 
stage production. Activities began in November 
with the annual Competitives, in which Freshman, 
Sophomore, and Junior classes each presented a 
play in Boys' Latin auditorium. 

The Junior Class placed first with the thriller 
Moment of Darkness, directed by Jan Blanchard and 
Elizabeth Brimley. The Sophomores gave Accent on 
Revenge, directed by Thelma Santoro, and the 
Freshmen, They're None of Them Perfect, directed by 
Edythe Davenport. 

The Christmas Pageant is one of the loveliest 

of Simmons' traditions. Aided by the Glee Club 
under the direction of June Radebaugh and Miss 
Margaret Milliken, the Club presented the Nativ- 
ity with Miriam Colvin as the Madonna. 

Spring Production on May g is always the big 
feature of ICC weekend. Ladies in Retirement, di- 
rected by Mr. Harlan Grant of the New England 
Conservatory of Music, was this year's presenta- 
tion. The cast included Maureen Markham as 
Leonora, Edythe Ehlers as Ellen, Jane Bergwall as 
Louisa, Jean Stocks as Emily, Patricia Willey as 
Lucy, Patricia Doherty as Sister Teresa; and Don- 
ald Davids of Harvard as Albert. 

The Club points with pride to Jane Bergwall, 
chosen by Harvard for its Adam the Creator. 

Club officers for 1946-47 were: President,

Treasurer, Thelma Santoro; Secretary, Jan

The open door policy of the English Club entices 
girls from all divisions of the College; membership 
is not limited to the English School. 

The club has made a determined effort this year 
to extend its interests. Hitherto, emphasis was laid 
on prose and poetry. This year, however, officers 
and members noted many new and fascinating 
developments in the fields of art, music, drama, 
and allied arts. They also sensed a growing interest 
in these developments on the part of the students, 
an interest which was not satisfied by any existing 
organization at the college. Therefore, the English 
Club has effected a reorganization, and has at- 
tempted to broaden its scope to satisfy these needs. 

This year, the English Club held a joint Christ- 
mas party with the Dramatic Club, 020, and the 
Home Economics Clubs, which featured a skit. 

refreshments served by the Home Ec girls, carol 
singing and Faculty guests. 

For its annual theater party in February, the 
club attended a performance of Oscar Wilde's 
The Importance of Being Earnest with John Gielgud. 
Mr. Seymour Baker, one of the new members of the 
English School Faculty, spoke to the club on Wilde 
at the meeting the day before. 

Members of the Club have big plans for ne.xt 
year. They wish to draw upon the vast store of 
literary, artistic, and musical talent which we have 
here in Boston. They hope to have speakers from 
the Institute of Modern Art, from the Museum 
School with which the college is now affiliated, 
from the Boston Public Library, and as many other 
sources as possible. 

Club officers for 1946-47 were: President, Edythe 
Davenport; Vice-President, Helen Payson; Secre- 
tary, Louise Shufro; Treasurer, Edith Leonard; 
Tea Chairman, Marcia Rodell.

The blue and gold ribbons worn by the chosen 
few Juniors and Seniors are more than a touch of 
color to brighten an academic gown. For the girl 
who wears it is a member of Simmons' most select 
organization — Academy. 

Founded in 1919, Academy was originally not 
an honor society, but a group which aimed at pro- 
motion and understanding of the arts. Membership 
was decided solely on the basis of proficiency in the 
non-professional subjects. When, in 1943, Academy 
was officially recognized as the Honor Society of 
Simmons College, admission requirements were 
changed to include proficiency in both professional

Today, in order to qualify, Sally must maintain 
a better than "B" average in all her courses for 
at least a two-year period. Then — hers are the 
honors. She may wear the blue and gold ribbon as 
well as the gold Academy key. 

New members were welcomed at the annual 
formal reception which was held this year at Evans 
Hall. The guest speaker. Miss Simone Daro, a 
Belgian student studying at Harvard University, 
spoke on comparative Belgian and American edu- 
cation. Coffee was served afterwards, and initiates 
chatted with their gratified professors. 

Academy sponsors social functions, too. This 
year's Christmas party was held jointly with 

D. Lamb, L. Sagik, R. Sharcojf 

Scribunal and Ellen Richards. 

There are now thirty-seven Academy members, 
and the club has great expectations that under- 
classmen will soon swell the ranks. 

Officers for the year were: President, Doris

Noted authors, educational movies, and gay 
parties characterize the meetings of O2O, the club 
which catalogs, classifies, and co-educates its forty- 
eight members. 

The purpose of O2O is to provide the members 
of the Library School, graduate and undergrad- 
uate, with an opportunity to hear speakers in the 
library field, to meet for social get-togethers, and 

Sealed, B. Perkins; Standing, M. Jenkins, M. Cole,

to become acquainted with the various categories 
of library work. 

Meetings of O2O offer many programs, giving 
members an opportunity to learn more about 
people and conditions; 020 feels that to be a good 
librarian a girl must know people and what they 
like, as well as the books they read. 

In November, Mr. Kenneth Shaeffer, the new 
director of the Library School spoke to the club 
and was welcomed by all members. At the same 
meeting. Miss Margaret Mann, author of Introduc- 
tion to Cataloging and Classification spoke on her phase 
of library work. 

The joint Christmas party with the English, 
Dramatic, and Home Economics clubs gave O2O a 
chance to show its dramatic abilities in the skit 
members produced. Leela Madgavkar gave a tradi- 
tional dance of her native country, India. India 
held sway once more at the March meeting. A 
"March of Time" on India was shown and Lela 
Madgavkar spoke on conditions in her country. 

Members of O2O had their last meeting in May 
at a party in the back yard to introduce new officers 
and say farewell to seniors. 

Officers for 1946-47 were: President, Barbara 
Perkins; Vice-President, Martha Cole; Secretary, 
Mildred Libby; Treasurer, Marcia Knight; and 
Chairman of Social Activities, Marion Jenkins.

Operation Hiroshima was a loud explosion end- 
ing the war to a great many of us, but to science 
majors the atomic bomb was the beginning of a 
new war — an attack on ignorance, escapism and 
amoral materialism. Speakers representing biol- 
ogy, chemistry, and physics enlightened members 
at meetings of Ellen Richards. 

Unlike the other schools at Simmons, Science is 
divided into the three fields mentioned above, and 
the Ellen Richards Club is the medium of uniting 
the biology, physics, and chemistry majors. When 
smock-clad girls stepped out of their labs into the 
Lounge, they were no longer specific majors, but 
scientists all — interested in all allied fields and 
related problems. 

On November 5th, new members. Sophomores 
in the School of Science, were initiated by the 
Juniors and Seniors. They roamed the corridors 
painted with gentian violet, carrying bunsen burn- 
ers, and serenading instructors. Sixty members 

we may undertake an 

attended the meeting, and the 1947 activities 
started off with an atomic bang. 

Ellen Richards celebrated its twenty-seventh 
birthday in February. Founded in 1920, it has the 
distinction of being the first school club at Simmons. 
Though it was founded principally to stimulate an 
interest in scientific endeavor, it has since proved a 
stimulus to good fellowship as well. Dr. John Timm 
acts as the catalyst for the three groups of science 
majors, and a well-balanced formula is the result. 

In May the club had a barbecue in the back- 
yard when scientific food for thought gave way to 
hearty appetites. Hot-dogs and mustard overruled 
test tubes and beakers, while NaC 1 did away with 
the customary HQSO4 used to flavor the mysterious 
laboratory concoctions. 

Ellen Richards members' interests vary from 
cosmic research to laboratory work, from pre-med 
training to chemical analysis. 

OflBcers for 1946-47 were: President, Evelyn 
Drake; Secretary-Treasurer, Martha Coady; Pub- 
licity Chairman, Harriet Dinsmoor.

Anne Strong — forty-five strong. Tlie clul) seeks 
to promote closer relationship between nurses who 
have left Simmons and joined the staff of a local 
hospital, and college nurses. 

Meetings were held every second Tuesday at 
Evans' Game Room. These gatherings were lively. 
Usually they were social, with accent on relaxation 
and re-acquaintance. 

Miss Lyndon MacCarroll, Director of the School 
of Nursing, was guest of honor at the first meeting. 
Another featured several veteran nurses. The third 
program was built around group singing. At the 
final meeting of the year, fifth-year nurses were 
guests of honor, and presented reviews of their 
activities and impressions. 

Anne Strong invited student nurse representa- 
tives from each hospital to each meeting. Notices 
of the meeting were posted in the hospitals in ad- 
vance, and girls were urged to attend. The 
response was sufficient to prove Anne Strong's pop- 
ularity as a recreational club for our nurses, both at 
Simmons and at affiliated hospitals. 

ethical management 

In December a Christmas Party was held at the 
College, at which they enjoyed a monologue, an ex- 
cerpt from the White Cliffs of Dover by Mrs. Sarah 
Burkhartd, the guest speaker. Santa Claus himself, 
in the person of Jacqueline McKnight, appeared 
bundled in a jolly red costume to distribute gifts 
to all. Favors were miniature replicas of Simmons 
nurses' caps. 

But the ceremony which Simmons nurses re- 
member most fondly is the capping exercise. This 
year, on January 12, twenty-nine junior nurses 
received their caps, and lit a candle representing 
the Florence Nightingale lamp. The ceremony sig- 
nified completion of preclinical activities, and per- 
mitted each girl to proudly wear the cap and cape 
of a Simmons nurse. 

Officers of Anne Strong for 1946-47 were: Presi- 
dent, Dorothy Bigelow; Vice-President, Dora 
Ross; Secretary, Claire Sullivan; Treasurer, Bar- 
bara Woodbury; Refreshment Chairman, Patricia 
Ferris; Program Chairman, Jane Bond.

it's all in a day's work for the members of the 
Home Economics Club. These girls in white may

fully compare the results of their hours at school. 
They arrive at the same conclusion — although 
food for thought, you just can't drink H2SO4 or 
munch on Fen Ways. 

The Club started its activities in October with a 
get-acquainted meeting, and filled the subsequent 
months with good programs and refreshments. 
November featured a panel discussion on Home 
Ec curriculum improvement; December, a joint 
Christmas party with the Dramatic Club, O2O, and 
Scribunal. In February, Home Ec members heard 
Miss Clothilde Cokinos, a graduate student, speak 
about life in Greece, her native country, which she 
left in the Fall to come to Simmons. In March the

Club was hostess to the Massachusetts Home 
Economics College Club Convention. 

Home Ec is one club which can add easily to its 
treasury — it has found that catering is a worth- 
while pursuit. Throughout the year on certain 
nights each week, club members conducted a sand- 
wich, coke, and candy sale on upperclass campus. 
At 9:30 students left studying for a few minutes to 
congregate at Evans Halls for a smoke, a chat, and 
a coke — a pleasant break from learning at a weary 
part of the night.

variety of professional^ social^ and civic aims. 

Typewriter instead of stylus, rag-content bond 
instead of papyrus — the tools of the 1947 scribe 
leave more time for sociability than her predecessor 
enjoyed. Scribunal devotes that time to cementing 
relations between each Business School girl, her 
instructors, and her fellow students at well-attended 
4:10 teas and talks. 

The first meeting in the Fall was an important 
one, for Mr. Salsgiver, the new Director of the 
Business School, was introduced to the students 
and welcomed cordially. 

Scribunal combined professional training with 
entertainment in its November fashion show. The 
theme was "Styles Worn by the Business Girl." 
Members culled helpful hints about color, line, and 
design for future use. 

The joint Christmas party held in conjunction 
with Academy and Ellen Richards featured carol 
singing and refreshments.

Keys to success 

"Vanity, thy name is woman!" Scribunal girls 
flocked to the February meeting to observe a 
beauty counselor who demonstrated make-up. 
Mascara, lipstick, rouge, and powder were applied 
and removed, with two club members serving as 
models. According to the speaker, Miss Williams, 
"The way you remove your make-up is as impor- 
tant as the way you apply it." Chic business-bound 
gals illustrate that point. 

April came quickly, and wise Scribunal officers, 
their thoughts moving beyond June, requested 
their Personnel Director give them hints on how 
to apply for a job. The instructions were simple 
and forthright — "Be confident, be meticulous, and 
above all, be personable." 

Officers for 1946-47 were: President, Alice Dris-

Claire Keefe; Secretary, Jane Church; and Pro- 
gram Chairman, Elsie Stone.

the B'nai Brith Hillel Foundation at Simmons. Its 
puipose is to create a vibrant life on campus for 
Jewish students. The program, which places equal

emphasis on cultural, religious, and social activ- 
ities, is designed to instruct the Jewish student in 
her own culture, enabling her to live harmoniously 
with her fellows. The program is highly flexible and 
is adjusted to fulfill every interest the members 

This year the Hillel program included a weekly 
study series conducted by Director Charles Feld- 
stein. At meetings guest speakers featured were 
Rabbi Harry Esrig, who spoke on "American 
Jewry," and Miss Ruth Rubin, who sang and lec- 
tured on Jewish folk music. Dr. Willima Furie 
spoke at the Jewish Book Week Tea. 

Social activities have included Sunday after- 
noon tea dances held at the Hillel Lounge at Cop- 
ley Square. A rotation system was adopted for these 
dances so that each member would be able to at- 
tend at least one. 

Hillel originated at Simmons in 1943. Dr. Judah 
J. Shapiro, who is now Associate National Director 
of Hillel Foundations, organized the Simmons 
chapter which has maintained active leadership 
since its inception.

The Seraeant and the Simmonsites 

"The state of the union" is the concern of every 
member of USSA, the chib open to all students who 
are interested in current events, their problems, and 
their solutions. 

USSA's principal function, so far as all-student 
interest is concerned, is the excellent assembly pro- 
gram schedule planned for this year. Fletcher 
Martin, a Nieman Fellow at Harvard; Robert 
Segal, a labor lawyer; and Martha Sharpe, a 
speaker on Palestine, were three of the speakers. 

Questions of primary interest to USSA members 
are Russia, labor legislation, general legislation, 
the Palestine situation, and problems concerning 
discrimination. This year the twenty spirited mem- 
bers canvassed during elections; participated in the 
anti-discrimination campaign and the sales tax 
issue; and held postcard campaigns on pending- 
national legislation of which they either approved 
or disapproved. 

USSA is an autonomous student division of the 
Union for Democratic Action which has fifty chap- 
ters in colleges throughout the country. Chapters 
frequently hold joint meetings to have forums on 
current topics, on the principle that intelligent 
discussion can be transformed into effective, worth- 
while action. Motivating USSA is not only the 
desire to learn about current events but also the urge 
to do something about them.

retary, Phyllis Zipperstein; Treasurer, Lillian

Both faith and fun 

Spurred by the example of the faith and fortitude 
of Cardinal Newman, Catholic girls at Simmons 
join the Newman Club to foster their religious, in- 
tellectual, moral, and social welfare during their 
college years. 

At each monthly meeting this year. Father Ryan, 
Newman's Chaplain, gave a lecture on the "Proof 
That There Is A God." To further the girl's Cath- 
olic education away from home, he also delivered 
bi-monthly instructional talks in the Doctor Gay 

As a member of the Newman Federation of Bos- 
ton, and, consequently, of the National Federation 
of Newman Clubs, Simmons' Catholic students 
were entitled to attend the monthly dances at the 
Hotel Continental, and the weekly informals at the 
Federation Center. 

In March, the Club held a meeting to determine 
who this year's guest speaker would be. The subject

each year is selected because of its religious-socio- 
logical significance. 

In March also, the Federation informed the 
officers about initiation. At this function, the girls 
were impressed with the dignity, the importance, 
and the responsibility of leadership in the Newman 

The Mother's Day Communion Breakfast offered 
the opportunity for the girls to reveal' to their 
mothers the unity, high aim, and scope of the Club, 
besides giving them the proud pleasure of introduc- 
ing their mothers to friends. 

Officers for 1946-47 were: President, Jacqueline 
Bates; Vice-President, Jean Mahoney; Secretary, 
Mary Kerr; Treasurer, Joan Bradley; Tea Chair- 
men, Theodora Casanni and Claire Moran. 

Newman and the other religious clubs are repre- 
sentative of the "one world" atmosphere at Sim- 
mons. Although each group meets separately, by 
means of inter-faith projects and through natural 
student intercourse, they propagate the spirit of 
tolerance and harmony which they will carry from 
college to the world outside. 

Food for thought 


"There's Mt. Monadnock!" The six girls on bikes 
sent up a shout of joy. "It won't be long now!" 

Later, up near the summit, they cooked their 
meal over an open fire, exhilarated by the buoy- 
ancy of fresh air, the lush panorama below, and 
smell of sizzling hamburgers. 

That was 1940. When the girls returned to Sim- 
mons, the spirit of the open road overflowed. 
Others caught their enthusiasm. The contagion 
spread fast, and the Simmons Outing Club, which 
today has 123 members, was born. 

The purpose of Outing Club is to further an 
interest in outdoor activities, and this it does by 
presenting members with opportunities for all 
kinds of trips. The Fall brings hiking and rock- 
climbing. The Winter encourages skating and ski- 
ing. In Spring there is more hiking, and canoeing 
or bicycling. Square dances are held with neigh- 
boring colleges all year round. 

With New England's versatile weather and geog- 
raphy, all things are possible on the Outing Club 

agenda. In October the Club fell to the lure of Mt. 
Chocorua. Snow in January provided the opportu- 
nity for a winter carnival replete with snow men, real 
men, tobogganing, crackling fires, "and the pledge 
of fellowship." 

A ski trip to Jaffrey, New Hampshire, high- 
lighted the March calendar. When the conditions 
of the ski slopes were approved, the skiers collected 
their parkas and snow glasses, bound for North 
Station and points beyond. 

With the advent of warm weather, the Outing 
Club turned southward — to the Blue Hills and 
Cape Cod. Trips Director Shirley Barry planned 
a bicycle route to the scrub pines, sand dunes, and 
salt water. Hardy members remembered the bridle 
paths in the Reservation, and an influx of outdoor 
fans streamed toward the riding academies in 
jodhpurs or blue jeans.

Duflfy; Secretary-Treasurer, Mary Jane Thomas,

Community conscious, the work of the "Y" is 
emblematic of the ideal of one world. The ninety 
members are united in their social, educational, 
and recreational program by their common desire 
to play an active role in making the world a better 
place to live in. 

The "Y" season started in October, with a skit 
satirizing activities. Later, "Y" observed United 
Nations Week with a movie and discussion. At 
Christmas time, the girls gave presents to children 
at a settlement house, rather than exchanging gifts 
among themselves. 

Throughout the year, "Y" cooperated with 
Hillel and Newman on inter-faith projects, and 
with USSA on public affairs. 

Officers for the year were: Eleanor Potter, Presi- 
dent; Constance Marshall, Vice-President; Nancy 
Bradley, Secretary; Virginia Congdon, Treasurer; 
Frances Foulkes, Tea Chairman. 

The annual Red Feather Community Fund 
Drive at Simmons gives students an opportunity 
for participation in the activities of the commu- 
nity in which they live and study. This combined 
drive raises funds for all social service agencies op- 
erating in Boston, enabling them to offer a better 
and wider welfare service. 

Because of the increased goal of the Boston Red 
Feather Drive, the Simmons College goal for 1 946- 
47 was 100 percent contribution. The drive was 
originally organized to make Sally Simmons aware 
that through her contribution to the Fund drive, 
she expresses her interest in the need for community

The Christian Science Club at Simmons has also 
enjoyed an active season. The first social function 
was a welcoming tea held in September. At the 
December meeting, Simmons girls were hostesses 
to other collegiate Christian Science organizations. 
Mr. Randall Dunn spoke. 

In the Spring, the club attended a lecture given 
by a member of the Board of Lectureship of the 
Mother Church, First Church of Christ, Scientist, 
on Norway Street in Boston. 

The club consists of fifteen members whose sin- 
cere aim is to bring about friendship and coopera- 
tion among the Christian Scientists of the College; 
to welcome entering Christian Scientists; to in- 
crease love and friendship among members en- 
rolled in the College. 

Club officers for 1946-47 were: Chairman, 
Nancy Harrington; Readers, Doris Linnell, Shirley 
Gavin; Secretary-Treasurer, Elaine Gavin. 

The only club of its kind at Simmons, Inter- 
Varsity Christian Fellowship was founded to give 
Christian girls an opportunity to continue their 
Bible studies although far away from their homes 
and churches. The Simmons chapter is one of the 
youngest in the national organization; it was 
founded when the Unity League and the League of 
Evangelical Students merged. 

Unlike other clubs which hold only monthly 
meetings, IVCF holds weekly meeting every Mon- 
day. Monthly meetings are held jointly with nearby 
colleges at the Gordon Theological School on Sat- 
urday evenings. Since the Fellowship was founded 
to strengthen the faith of students through the 
college world, it lays emphasis on Bible study and 
Bible discussion.

Proofs and paints 

Queens, bombs, and college campuses — we've 
had them all in Fen Ways. 

It was our English lab. We procrastinated and 
thought and pondered for the first weeks and then 
set to work. We held three a.m. seances planning 
and collaborating; sandwiched in trips to the en- 
graver's between shorthand and Shakespeare. 
There were daily frantic calls to "Al" at the Press: 
"Where are the galleys for page nine?" or "You 
mean we can't bleed on page two? I'm ruined! The 
whole dummy's got to be changed!" 

Finally the day came when all the galley and 
engraver's proofs were back. We took out our ever- 
faithful rubber cement, a pair of scissors, our eight- 
and-a-half by eleven layout sheets, and settled 
down for the weekend. 

Then — "P-Day." We heaved a sigh of relief, said 
a prayer that we'd make expenses, and put "our 
baby" on the stands.

entice us to the dance. The Poster Committee has 
scored another hit.

May 2, 1946 — Happy New Year! The editorial 
calendar of Mic 1947 marked the start of the new 
year at Stu-G May Party, and was an unconven- 
tional date-keeper from that date to Publication 
Day a year later. Time was counted from deadline 
to deadline, rather than from day to day. The 
dummy was planned by the end of July. . .senior 
pictures were taken before the middle of November 
. . . every photograph was cropped and sent to the 
engraver's by the first of February. . .and all copy 
was in the hands of the printer on March 4. The 
production of the book was a painful, time-harassed 
but thoroughly absorbing process, attended by 
midnight vigils, aspirins, a thousand cups of coffee, 
and in the moments of great desperation, thoughts 
of the all-compensating, omnipotent, omniscient 
Great God Experience! 

The theme of Mic is suggested by its name — 
microcosm, the little world within a world. The di- 
visions are natural ones, for life at Simmons and

Business before pleasure — but efficient 

Diplomatic legations, advertising agencies, and 
business firms are the goals of Business School 
students who study economics, German, Russian, 
Spanish, social studies and English literature, as 
well as the technical business subjects they need for 
secretarial proficiency. 

During the year, under the supervision of Mr. 
Paul L. Salsgiver, the new Director of the School, 
the four-year undergraduate program has been 
completely revamped. Accounting will be reduced 
to one semester; Introduction to Business will be 
offered to Sophomores; and Advertising, Business 
Law, and Office Management courses will be re- 
vised in keeping with the new program. 

The School of Business stresses the importance 
of preparing its students for professional occupations 
by instructing them in sound business practice and 
efficient shorthand and typewriting techniques, as 
well as developing their qualities of initiative and 
sound judgment. To this end, attention is devoted 
to an analysis of the problems of management in 
terms of actual conditions in business organizations. 

That these aims have 
succeeded is apparent, 
for graduates have 
prospered in their own 
advertising and retail 
businesses, as well as in

management leaves time for pleasure 

positions in government agencies, educational in- 
stitutions, personnel offices, and as competent sta- 
tisticians and wage analysts. 

Students choose the special field they wish to 
enter when they are Sophomores, and select their 
courses accordingly. Advertising, personnel, real 
estate, accounting, inter-American relations, or 
medical secretarial positions are a few of the fields 
of concentration. 

The one-year program offered to qualified grad- 
uate students is designed to give them intensive 
training for positions in business. Professional elec- 
tives may be taken in advertising, personnel, and 
other specialized fields. 

In the past few years, the Business School, cogni- 
zant of the changes brought about by the end of the 
war, has trained its students even more thoroughly 
in vocational subjects and allowed them more elec- 
tives in liberal arts, for a secretary possessing a well- 
rounded academic education has a considerable 
advantage over one who has less background. 

In April the Seniors left for practice work in 
the field of their choice. 
Students worked in 
hospital offices, law 
offices, department 
stores, advertising 
agencies, and colleges.

tion of liberal and pro- 
fessional subjects 
makes the English 
School at Simmons 

unique. For it aims to provide students with a maxi- 
mum of liberal arts study plus the technical train- 
ing necessary to equip them for positions in the 
editing and publishing of books and magazines, 
and in journalism, publicity, and advertising. 

This year, aided by alumnae suggestions, Mr. 
Raymond F. Bosworth, Director of the School, 
effected a drastic curriculum revision. The Soph- 
omore program was reconstructed: for background 
each student is now required to take English litera- 
ture of a specific period, coupled with several re- 
lated courses in history, sociology or economics and 
art or music. 

The Junior program was revised to admit more 
complete study. Form, Style, Copy Editing, and 
Proofreading are now taught by both Mr. Bosworth 
and Mr. Bliss. Mr. Valz's Introduction to the 
Graphic Arts has been extended for another se- 
mester. Continued through the Senior year, this 
provides a basic and thorough knowledge of editing 
and publishing techniques. It is a valuable course — 
the only undergraduate course of its kind offered in

the United States. Initiated this year also is the art 
program which enabled three Juniors to combine 
the requirements of the EngHsh School with art 
training at the Museum School. 

The Senior curriculum was revamped to include 
more technical work. Layout and Design, and 
Industrial Wi'iting and Editing were introduced 
to the School. Both courses were taught by profes- 
sionals: Mr. Kenneth Morang, a commercial artist, 
and Miss Dorothy Williams, industrial editor and 
Simmons 194 1 alumna. 

The Doctor Gay Laboratory saw much use this 
year. First lab of the English School, this room is 
furnished with bookcases, round table, and pro- 
jector. It is the English School technical library and 
the Fen Ways work room. 

In April, the Seniors left the College for two 
weeks of practice work, gaining actual editorial 
experience on such publications as Filene's The 
Echo, The Writer, The Atlantic Monthly, Glamour, 
Women's Wear Daily, and The Lamp. While company 
and popular magazines attracted the majority of 

the girls, others sought 
experience in advertis- 
ing and publicity of- 
fices, on daily news- 
papers, and in pub- 


ing nouses.

From angel cake to textile analysis. 

Marriage or career — Home Economics girls are 
prepared for both. For the programs ofFered by 
the School combine professional preparation for a 
career in some field of Home Economics, with basic 
preparation in homemaking. Provision is also made 
for a background in liberal education. 

To provide a foundation for later specialization, 
students receive the same basic training in Home 
Economics and in the social, physical, and biologi- 
cal sciences. 

Those students interested mainly in foods and 
nutrition may direct their programs toward die- 
tetics, institutional management, public health 
nutrition, or research. With careful choice of elec- 
tives, students may meet the requirements of the 
American Dietetic Association, which is basic for 
many institutional management positions. Courses 
in community nutrition are available for a selected 
group of undergraduate students. Community 
agencies, hospitals, and business organizations 
provide excellent facilities for the necessary field

stores and manufacturing plants, teaching, re- 
search, educational departments of industries — all 
these are possible occupational goals for textile 
majors. To prepare for this work, students acquire 
a firm l:)ackground in general science as well as 
specific courses in the use of standard textile-testing 
equipment. Those students with artistic talents may 
elect courses in dress design and construction, with 
the aim of entering the designing field, or otherwise 
working with fabrics. 

Under Dr. Elda Robb, Professor of Nutrition 
and Director of the School, the Home Economics 
program is constantly expanding, since general 
preparation in various fields of home economics is 
valuable to so many girls, whether or not it consti- 
tutes their major field of study. This is desirable, 
for example, for those who wish to teach, or to 
become extension workers, as well as demonstration 
agents and 4-H Club leaders. To meet this demand, 
the School has instituted a course in Home Eco- 
nomics for non-majors. This innovation will en- 
able the scientific or the literary student to learn 

the fundamentals of 
Home Ec, thereby ful- 
filling a purpose of the 
school — to prepare stu- 
dents to care for homes 
of their own.

What the nation reads is the concern of the 
Library Science School. Directed by Mr. Kenneth 
R. Schaeffer, the School provides the basic pro- 
fessional preparation needed for a successful career 
in library work. The School realizes that the suc- 
cessful librarian has not only a thorough knowledge 
of the technical procedures, but also a broad back- 
ground in literature, language, social studies, music 
and art. 

With this in mind, the School provides a curricu- 
lum which includes three years of study in liberal 
arts, and one intensive year of professional tech- 
niques. Thus, the professional scope of graduates 
of the School of Library Science is prodigious. 
Simmons alumnae organize libraries and book- 
mobiles, do social service work and research in 
science, medicine, and history. 

During the year, the School of Library Science 
entertained about twenty guest speakers who rep- 
resent varied fields of library activity. Some of the 
speakers presented this year were: Dr. Archibald 
MacLeish, former Librarian of Congress; Dr. 
Luther H. Evans, present Librarian of Congress; 
Mr. Edward Weeks, Editor of The Atlantic Monthly;

Harvard; Mr. Clarence E. Sherman, Libraries of 
the Providence Public Library; and Miss Betty Joy

Moving outside Simmons, Library Science stu- 
dents visited many libraries in the Boston area: 
the Boston Public Library, Widener at Harvard, 
the Boston Athenaeum, and the collections of the 
Boston Medical Library and the Massachusetts 
Horticultural Library Society. 

Seniors in the School did field work in a wide 
geographical area. This year's students chose 
greater New England, Brooklyn, New York City, 
Rochester, Baltimore, and Detroit libraries for 
their field work in the spring. 

At present, the student body in the Library 
School consists of three-quarters graduate students, 
and one-quarter undergraduates. The School is co- 
educational, having about a score of men now en- 
rolled in the graduate program.

More than average ability and preparation are 
the make-up of a Simmons nurse. In the five-year 
program, students are taught the theory of nursing 
in such courses as biology, chemistry, physics, 
anatomy, psychology, nutrition, and foods in their 
first two-and-a-half years at Simmons, and are 
given practical nursing experience in the two 
summer sessions. The summer sessions are con- 
ducted at the Massachusetts General, Peter Bent 
Brigham, and Beth Israel Hospitals, where wards 
and classrooms are open to the students. 

Hospital work then dominates the program, and 
Simmons nurses receive two full years of hospital 
experience with intensive clinical instruction in 
medical nursing, surgical nursing, operating-room 
techniques, and diet kitchen practice, plus more 
allied theoretical instruction. 

The last semester, back at the College, is given 
over to special preparation in public health nursing 
education, and affiliation with the Visiting Nurse 
Association of Boston.

not adapted for a nursing career, she may transfer 
to any other school at Simmons without loss of 
any credits. 

The one-year program in General Public Health 
Nursing, open to registered nurses, is made up 
largely of supervised field experience and observa- 
tion the first semester, while the second half is spent 
in instruction at Simmons. Courses in writing, so- 
ciology, education, psychology, and public health 
nursing are given. 

Ward management is the other one-year program 
offered to registered nurses who wish to prepare for 
administrative work in hospitals and schools of 
nursing, especially for head-nurse and supervisory 
positions in hospitals. 

There is a program, too, for registered nurses 
desiring a Bachelor of Science degree. Flexible, 
thorough, and well-organized, this program allows 
credit for all professional work and college courses 
previously taken. 

With this wealth of experience and excellent 
training, Simmons 
nurses are in great de- 
mand and obtain posi- 
tions of responsibility 
in any of several fields 
of their choice. 

Progress protnised the public 
Back in jo months.' 


Our pre-professionals promise progress; 

Before preprofessional study is begun, students 
in "Prepi-o," directed by Dr. Harrison L. Harley, 
take four years of liberal arts courses. The type of 
program each student takes depends on the field of 
professional work she is interested in. 

Students with social work as their aim concen- 
trate on sociology, psychology, economics, govern- 
ment, ethnic group relations and labor problems. 
This is in keeping with the Curriculum Committee 
of the American Association of Schools of Social 
Work which recommends a broad cultural educa- 
tion. Such students must be keenly interested in 
people, their problems, and their solutions, for 
World Wars I and II have brought the question of 
rehabilitation to the fore. Students may turn to 
medical or civic social work, but in either case, 
they must be able to determine social policies and 
to estimate their effects. It is their early study of the 
social sciences that gives Preprofessional girls this 
needed insight. 

Other Preprofessional students choose graduate 
library schools as their goal. They, too, take social 
science courses, but base the remainder of their 
program on languages, social statistics, and Eng-

lish. Graduate schools of library science require 
college graduation for admission, and Simmons 
Preprofessional girls acquire the necessary liberal 
background for this requirement. 

Retailing is the third field frequently entered. 
Most Simmons students in this school are aiming 
for admission to Prince. A liberal course, similar 
to that taken by all preprofessional students, is 
offered. At the Prince School of Retailing, students 
major in retailing in the last two years, but their 
first two years are devoted to cultural subjects. 
However, a student may take the full four years at 
Simmons, prior to graduate work. 

Medicine, dentistry, and nursing attract others. 
Their programs are planned from the first year to 
meet the requirements of the medical, dental, or 
nursing school they expect to enter. Occupational 
therapy and physiotherapy are selected by some. 

Such study as the Preprofessional School offers 
is of invaluable aid to students who desire a firm 
foundation for further study. Many of the students 
from the Class of 1947 will continue their educa- 
tion at such schools as the University of Chicago, 
Columbia, and Simmons' School of Social Work.

Via classroom and field work^ Prince 

A REDECORATED MANSION at 49 Commonwealth 
Avenue houses 107 Simmons girls. The Prince 
School of Retailing, under the direction of Mr. 
Donald K. Beckley, educates students for respon- 
sible positions in retailing, offering courses in Con- 
sumption, Business Law, Merchandising, Labor Re- 
lations, Salesmanship, Store Organization, Finan- 
cial Control, Fashion, Advertising and Display, 
Techniques of Teaching, Retail Research, and ex- 
tensive field work in retail stores. 

The Prince School offers two programs — a four- 
year undergraduate program, and a one-year 
course planned primarily for college graduates. 
Each course prepares students for executive posi- 
tions in retail stores as personnel directors, buyers, 
sales and fashion promoters, research directors, and 
office managers. Many Prince girls have entered 
the field of teaching. 

The curriculum is frequently revised because of 
the changing tempo of store administration. Next 
year, a new course — The Retailer and Society — is 
being oflFered to the students. 

Field work, of great 
importance in all 
schools, is especially 
vital for Prince girls, 
for the school feels 
that only through such

observation and practice can the student familiar- 
ize herself with the systems and methods of retail 
stores. Consequently, each Prince School girl 
spends the six weeks before Christmas doing field 
work in such cities as Boston, New York, Phila- 
delphia, Seattle, Denver, and Chicago. 

Next year, for the first time, Prince School will 
admit qualified male graduates to its one-year 
program. This innovation is in keeping with 
Prince's conviction that retailing and merchandis- 
ing are expanding fields calling for more and 
better-trained college graduates. 

Grooming is an essential part of a retailing 
major's training. The Administration requires 
students to live up to the standards of the profes- 
sional world — stockings and heels, neat suits and 
dresses — in short, impeccable grooming. 

Headed by Marie Rey, the new Prince Club 
opened its meetings to Sophomores to acquaint 
them with Prince before they enter the School of 
Retailing proper their Junior year. Since it be- 
gan last September, this Club has been one of the 

most active in the Col- 
lege. Teas, dances, and 
bridge parties have 
been held, and in 
March Stu-G ratified 
its constitution.

But the School of Science does not stop with 
preparation for research. Simmons graduates are 
equipped to enter any branch of science they 
choose. They have a knowledge of related sciences 
and the humanities as well. 

Programs are arranged to qualify students to 
serve wherever science is advanced through re- 
search or applied to the problems of medicine, 
agriculture, or industry. Graduates are employed 
as bacteriologists in food laboratories, as medical 
technicians in hospital diagnostic laboratories, and 
as biologists or chemists in preparing penicillin 
and pharmaceuticals. 

It is not surprising that ninety-one students are 
now enrolled in the School of Science, for the 
number of positions graduates are able to obtain is 
extraordinary. If a student does not wish to enter 
industry or research, she may slant her program 
toward the teaching of 
science or mathematics 
— both in demand.

B.S. — many girls have 
gone on to graduate 
study and research in 
universities as candi- 
dates for a master's or a 
doctor's degree. 
The thirty-three Facuhy members of the Division 
of Science, under the supervision of Dr. John A. 
Timm, Director of the School, revised the curricu- 
lum requirements this year. Last year's student- 
alumnae curriculum committee, consisting of one 
Senior, one Junior, two Alumnae, and one Fac- 
ulty member, suggested the changes which were 
effected. The most significant aspect of the revised 
curriculum is that each science major is required 
to take at least twelve hours of academic electives 
during her three upperclass years, beside her 
courses required to assure a sufficient degree of 
confidence and competence in her field. 

These academic requirements satisfy both the 
students enrolled in the school and the Administra- 
tion of Simmons which wants each graduate to be 
a well-rounded person as well as a competent 
scientist in her job. That they have succeeded 
is evidenced by the positions now held by grad- 
uates in industrial laboratories, in research, as 
medical technologists, public health technologists, 
and in other related fields.

will we ever learn? 


By Jean Hirsch, 1950 

We came; we saw; we trembled! Our unshakable 
poise had long since deserted us, but, with our 
courage in one hand and our Freshman Bibles in 
the other, we proceeded through the doors of Sim- 
mons. From that minute on, we had to blink, run, 
or smile according to schedule. We were welcomed 
at least five times a day which was a blessing, for 
we felt confused, and when we had time to think 
we really appreciated it. We signed our names until 
our pens went dry, and then we ran for more ink. 
Tests and questions swam before our eyes until we 
couldn't tell an indefinite article from the formula 
for chloroform! We sang college songs and won- 
dered piteously if we'd ever be able to dash them 
off as casually as the Juniors did. Remember — "I 
am... Who are you?" Remember — "Who's your 
advisor? Is he nice? Is he married?" Remember? 
Our Bibles became thin from constant reference, 
our crammed heads throbbed, our throats pained, 
and our knees shook, but after one short week, we 
were orientated!

"Enough of this boning! Let's have some fun!" 
Periodically, we hid Child Development and Guide to 
Reference far out of sight, giving precedence to din- 
ner dancing and hoboing, to orchidaceous dates and 
daisy chains. 

We chose Pris Briggs "Queen of the Junior 
Prom." At MIC we gave a Simmons' bull to Fran 
Wojnar's man when the ushers elected him "Most 
Likely to Be Caught on Sadie Hawkins' Day." 
We sang carols at the Stu-G Christmas formal. We 
slipped out to the bar, took our time over the cokes 
and rye-and-gingers, and grumbled when we re- 
turned barely in time for the familiar "Good Night, 

We went to the Valentine Party with the Fresh- 
men and their Sophomore sisters, watching goggle- 
eyed when Kamaolipua Thompson did her hula- 
hula. At the Bib Party we cheerfully booed Count 
Gruffanuff and the Wicked Queen in the "meller- 
drama" Gladys the Swallow produced and directed 
by Anne Maloof and Pepper Mainwaring. 

Illustrating our typical Simmons' adaptability 
to any situation, we crawled on our hands and 
knees to the Senior Hobo Party, bound to elevate 
Class President Nan Atherton to new heights as 
"Miss Hobo of 1947." 

Well, we can't all be on Academy!

Elizabethan costumes and Puckish jesters were 
instrumental in changing the atmosphere of the 
Refectory on upperclass campus from that of a col-

for Olde English Dinner.

with the picturesque costumes of the Council

This year, the Court was presided over by the

Their pages were Roz Cole and Nancy Kitfield. 
Connie Marshall, in blue and gold velvet, played 
the herald, nobly blowing her horn to announce 
all visitors to the hall. Cricket Worth and Jean 
McGuire (and Mr. Rankin!) were the elements of 
disorder — the jesters whose antics made merriment 
the keynote of the traditional festival. 

The succulent roast pork dinner was tucked 
away with the aid of knives only. It wasn't too 
difficult to manage the pork — in fact it was fun to 
be a barbarian! — but chasing the boiled onions and 
mashed potatoes around the plate made us realize 
the blessings of "civilization." The plum pudding 
gave us excellent insight into the English fondness 
for that dish. But we were glad we didn't have to 
eat the boar's head! We considered it only a prop.

Appeal their first week's salaries. At a class meeting 
on November 2 1 , the Class had voted unanimously 
to make this gift. 

After the flaming pudding was brought in by

The stage is set 
Six scene-stealers 



stellar performance 





By Anne Maloof 

ular as Brat. Backstage, there's a memory for each 
Thespian — the smell of greasepaint, the awful last- 
minute stage fright, the sound of the rising curtain, 
and then — a flood of faces. 

Out front there's the excitement of being a first- 
nighter. Down in the twelfth row you try to look 
as sophisticated as your camellia. But it's impos- 
sible. You're tense and nervous. That ole demon, 
class spirit, rears his head. Your class can't lose. But 
somebody's got to lose. The judges will see to that. 

Fortunately, Miss Matlack, Mrs. Berger, Mr. 
Timm and Mr. Sypher, the critics, are given sanc- 
tuary backstage after the final curtain. Before the 
cup is awarded, the Bluettes serenade the impatient, 
opinionated audience. Then in the hushed audi- 
torium of Boys' Latin, the curtain slithers up, re- 
vealing the winners — the Juniors. 

The silver loving-cup and the American Beauties 
contrast sharply with the drab prison costumes of 

the Juniors, but no silver cup can outshine their 
faces. Director Jan Blanchard receives the cup 
from Dramatic Club President Edie Ehlers. The 
cast finds it hard to wait until the curtain falls 
before hugging Jan and their roses. The "competi- 
tive" spirit is shelved in the uproar. Backstage, Soph 
Barb Carney and Peggy Longley, '50, break their 
necks to be among the first to shout their affection- 
ate congratulations. 

The hodge-podge of costumes reflects the variety 
in the plays. The Freshmen offered the sophisti- 
cated They're None of Them Perfect, complete with 
dinner gowns and cigarettes. The Juniors ran the 
gamut of emotions with sudden death, sadism, and 
insanity in the melodrama, A4oment of Darkness. 
The Sophomores put the Accent on Revenge in a set of 
typical dorm props — "Tech is Hell" banners, fish- 
net bulletins. 

You won't forget the spirit of Compets, even 
though you may not remember how many times 
you voted for your Class in 1946.

Time out for a 


Brides' Shop point of view 

Boston was our campus, so we really didn't have to 
leave home territory to enjoy ourselves in our time 
out this year. 

We catered to our ravenous appetites every- 
where — from Zallen's to the Oval Room. We made 
return engagements at Durgin-Park for more 
steak and strawberry shortcake, at the Blue Ship 
for the sturdy New England fare and the incompar- 
able damp-dock atmosphere. 

Our mileage mounted at the Fox and Hounds 
and the Balinese Room. We tripped the light fan- 
tastic on fraternity row, too — at Chi Phi, Sigma Nu, 
DU, Theta Chi, Phi Ep, and AE Pi. 

They wanted wings 
Another year, another cupcake

"The prowess of the Faculty?^'' 

On the ball 

By Priscilla Wheelock 

"There was no joy in Mudville . . . " — nor at 
Simmons when the ubiquitous Dr. Robert Rankin 
umpired the Faculty to victory at Field Day. 
Janie "The Lip" Washburn, in the best diamond 
tradition, valiantly but vainly disputed the decision 
of The Benevolent Despot. We repeat, the Faculty 
won — 8 to 5. Janie was supported in her righteous 
protest by the hoarse shouts from the blue-jean 
lines, "Kill the Umpire!" 

The Faculty's fair-haired boy, Spitball Timm, 
served 'em up; Influence Rankin called 'em. For a 
while Butterfingers Page and Angelface Bliss made 

From one Brat

O/ij that^s a joke^ sonV^ 


Calm, cool, and confused 

things look bright for the students. But Bulldog 
Bosworth and Hustlin' Vaughn, backed by Best- 
Bet Beatley, spelled murder for the poor old Sim- 
mons' nine. 

The student team didn't give up without a fight. 
Lightin' Norma Gold and Hot-Stuff Martin Cohen 
pitched a mean curve, sinker, and fast ball — keep- 
ing up the student morale to the last strike. The 
three J's — Janie Washburn, Jeannie Rea, and 
Jackie McKnight — starred in the field and at bat. 
But the odds were agin us. We lost. But if the 
Braves can take it, we can. Just wait 'til next year. 
Just wait. JUST WAIT. M-m-m-m-m?

•^ Personal perspective 



has responsibilities and func- 
tions which are peculiar to it- 
self alone. Juniors welcome 
Freshmen in the orientation 
period. Seniors greet transfer 
students. Sophomores receive 
'their official personal identi- 
ication with the school when 
Qiey first put on their College 
ig. Yet there is at Simmons 
IP painful line of demarcation 
iween groups — there is no 
la^ng of Freshmen, but 
ler a camaraderie, a desire 
to Jielp the newcomer learn 
ays of the group she has 
•sen to enter. There is no 
■imination — all person- 
is, races, and creeds may 
.me^t their own requirements 
still live together in har- 
i»ny in the microcosm of 


The Class of 1950 

The Class of 1950 is in the pink! The 
phrase refers not only to their mental and 
physical condition (wait a couple of 
years!) but also to their mascot, Zombie 
the Pink Elephant, and to their class 
flower, the camellia. 

According to Zombie, his colorful 
class was always on the go this year. They 
rushed to join clubs, dashed before day- 
break from the subway or Kent Street 
to get to first hours on time, shifted into 
second gear running past the noteboard, 
and pranced around the gym in Modern 
Dance as though they hadn't flunked 
their PFI's. 

The mad race with time began in 
September with Orientation Week when 
the newcomers took exams and Dutch 
Treat Supper in their stride, hardly hav- 
ing time to wonder whether they'd be 
able to out-live four years of Simmons- 
ing. There was no let-up in the rush 
when the sign-up sheet for the Tech Get- 
.-\cquainted Dance was posted. 

They relaxed a little at Bib Party 
when they all became tattooed ladies, 
courtesy of their Junior sisters. 

They were initiated to Simmons at 
College Opp, thinking how long it would 
be before they would have to start worry- 
ing about jobs. But May came. They were 
Sophs, and had to make The Big De- 
cision: "What school shall I enter?"

The Class of 1949 

Soph Stuff! Dopey, the Class mascot, 
knows all about it. He had the best year 
of his short life. 

In February, Dorothy Altieri and 
Mary Ann Balch took him to the Valen- 
tine Party. Dopey trudged up to the 
Assembly Hall, flopped into a seat, and 
laughed 'til his ears flapped at the Soph 
entertainment. Then he flew downstairs 
to make short work of his ice cream. 

Dopey is no wallflower. He went to 
Soph Shuffle with Chairman Elaine 
Gavin. He loved the Commander, and 
though he didn't dance much (self- 
conscious about his height), he thought 
Lew Tobin's band was smooth. Dopey 
approved of the dancers too — he gave a 
prize to the best-looking couple on the 

What he most anticipated all year was 
Soph Luncheon. He'd heard about it 
from the day he arrived, and could hardly 
wait to go to it. He was in great demand. 
He tried to divide this attention among 
Chairman Anne De Jong, Toastmistress 
Carolyn Benson, and the whole Soph 
Class. He thought the entertainment 
classic and the lunch delicious. He was 
as excited as a Sophomore should be 
when the new standardized rings were 
given out. But, alas for poor Dopey — 
they were too big for him. The terrific 
social and professional schedule of the 
year had made him lose weight!

The Class of 1948 

Frisky the Junior Colt had to gallop 
as fast as his felt legs would carry him to 
keep up with his class. He attended the 
Transfer Tea with Ruth Nelson and Jane 
Bergwall, Chairmen, to meet the new 
Juniors. As the most popular colt in the 
school, he was invited by Jean Mahoney 
and Midge Klein to be a guest at the Bib 
Party. A very literate horse, he was often 
called on by the Freshmen to sign bibs. 

Every time Frisky heard the word 
"party" he whinnied off to get ready. 
He's an incorrigible clothes horse. In 
his best bib and halter, he went to the 
surprise party for the nurses. He wouldn't 
have missed it for anything. He was in- 
troduced to Zombie the Pink Elephant at 
the Freshman-Junior Jamboree. They 
had loads of laughs over the peculiar cos- 
tumes they saw there. 

But the greatest event of Frisky's year 
was the Junior Prom. He'd been crossing 
the days off his calendar all year, and 
even the blizzard that started that night 
didn't dampen his enthusiasm. He got 
dressed in his best formal blanket and 
^waded through the snow to the Hotel 
Somerset with Ginny Johnson, the Chair- 
man. He swayed and neighed to Gene 
Dennis' music. It is rumored that Frisky, 
renowned for his "filly-al" devotion, 
gave his silver bracelet favor to his dream 
girl, Taffy Drake.

'43, 'U, '45, '46, '47 . 

Mr. Rankin was having a butt on the front steps the day we came 
for our physical. Before we went into the Inner Sanctum he told us 
about his grandchildren and his latest jokes. . . .Today, now that we 
have attained our majority, we understand those latest jokes. After 
we pulled on the "angel robes" (praying they'd be long enough), 
we were "exposed" to Orientation. Perfect physical specimens — it's 
hard to remember. 

Our first College formal! We were the picture of sophistication . . . 
trying hard to keep our shoulder straps up and our girdles down. It 
didn't really matter — everybody was looking at the uniforms and 
deciphering insignia. 

Around College, the Juniors showed us the ropes. They roped us 
into everything — Glee Club, Compels, Mews, Pan Am. We went 
to Step-Singing for the first time, and put on a good pantomime. 
We were impressed with the assemblies — Goldovsky, Russell, and 
Smedley, all in one season. We "learned" about the birds and the 
bees at College Opp. "Love's not a baseball game, girls. It's permis- 
sible to hold hands (first base), a kiss goodnight is all right (second 
base), but watch out for petting (third base). And girls (blush), 
home runs are Verboten!" 

Sophomore year everybody had a soap box. "Arm-chair strate- 
gists" armed with Ec, Nineteenth Century Lit, Modern European 
History, and Darwin — we knew how the war should be run. We 
knew what we'd do when we took over. We were all radicals, but we 
voted for Dewey in the all-college election. We loved being cynical 
at movies. The fade-outs that used to leave us breathless now made 
us gasp "Oh, God. Oh, no!" We still weren't so overcome with work 
that it was impossible to take in The Keys of the Kingdom and Dark 
Waters in the same afternoon. From the Met to the Majestic. Ham- 
burgers with — and ham. 

This was the year we all wrote V-mails to everybody else's man 
overseas. It was the year of the Battle of the Bulge and the beginning 
of the end of the Japs. This was the year we couldn't afford not to buy 
war stamps. 

Life came to Olde English Dinner. We made our friends buy it. 
We wrote half-way around the world telling the fighting forces to 
get their copies. In vain. Had we broken the camera? 

The war ended a month before we returned for our atom-con- 
scious Junior year. No more buddy-clubbing, or bandage-rolling 
in the Council Room, or forging requests for overseas packages. 
Our men swapped chevrons for pin stripes. The war was over. 

Simmons' nerves caught up with us, and we began to "congregate 
at Jimmie's with a quantity of coffee." Professionalization set in 
when the nurses were capped and the Prince girls left for Common- 
wealth Avenue, when we published our first Fen Ways and brought 
home the groceries in the Pilgrim House red wagon. 

We were be-corsaged at Stu-G May Party, proud but suddenly 
overwhelmed by our responsibilities. When we took over the steps 
at Class Day, we knew that this was it! 

When we were Juniors . 

the girl on the Fenway remembers them 

Seniors at last. Caps and bat-like gowns. Blue and gold ribbons. 
Practice work. . . .We cut Senior Lectures. Our doctors could give 
us appointments only on Tuesdays. Honest! 

We scanned the Herald book section for news of Mr. Lockridge's 
(Ross F. to us) novel. We wondered if the Guggenheim Fellowship 
had taken the fine edge off Mr. Tryon's wit. When we had time we 
read The Egg and I, Peace of Mind, Strange Fruit, The Robe, White 
Tower, One World, The Hucksters, Lost Weekend. 

We cut occasional afternoons (crowded classes made it less con- 
spicuous) to go to see The Best Tears of Our Lives, or the foreign films 
at the Exeter. We considered The Well-Digger's Daughter and Open 
City a part of our education. Part of our education also were the 
talks we had with Monique and Leela and all the girls who had come 
to Simmons from abroad. 

And finally we came to Senior Luncheon and Commencement. 
We watched Jackie Cross Fineblit run around the table three times 
to get roses to take home for our first baby. She took Tabu S. Kunk, 
our mascot, with her, too. 

For many of us the strains of Pomp and Circumstance soon will blend 
into Lohengrin .... For all of us a new life will begin. 

So let's toast — to the best years oi our lives. 

Farewell to the Fenway

Tabu S. Kunk, official representative of the Class of 1947, was a 
busy little satistician when Senior Poll was taken this fall. So much 
talent! So many gorgeous girls! How sad to have to eliminate all but 
one for each "most" or "best." But that's life, philosophized Tabu — 
wonderful, wistful life. 

"Brat," known more formally but less intimately as Jean Bratton, 
Chief Executive of Stu-G, led every Simmons' precinct as Most

White against black, Juniors carried the traditional daisy chain 
at Class Day on June 7, escorting the Senior Class to its place on the 
steps of the Colonnade at South Hall. There the President of the 
Class of 1948 received the cap and gown of Senior President 
Nancy Atherton in the ceremony which symbolized the assumption 
of authority by the Juniors. 

In the evening, the Seniors put the their dignity away, giving 
formal gowns precedence over academic robes. At their last prom — 
the Class Day Dance on the Nantasket Boat — "Good Night, 
Ladies" had a special significance. 

Sunday, June 8, at the Baccalaureate services in the Temple 
Israel Meeting House on Longwood Avenue, the Reverend Fred- 
erick M. Meek, Rector of the Old South Church in Boston, addressed 
the candidates for the degree of Bachelor of Science. Immediately 
after, the Seniors left for the President's Reception in the Refectory 
on the main campus. 

At Symphony Hall on June 9, the Seniors listened to the Com- 
mencement speaker. Dr. Harlow Shapley, Paine Professor of Prac- 
tical Astronomy, Director of the Harvard College Observatory. 
Then they received their degrees from President Bancroft Beatley, 
and Simmons welcomed two hundred and twenty new alumnae.

It^s a custom at Simmons 

BRIDES' SHOPPE: Throughout her four years 
at college, Susy Simmons takes in a gay whirl of 
class proms and special dates that call for an extra- 
special evening gown. When she chooses that dress, 
she goes to the BRIDES' SHOPPE on Newbury 
Street, because there she finds everything from 
foaming net to the suave swish of taffeta. And 
when her wedding dreams come true, she knows 
she will find one which fits the spirit of her big 
moment at the BRIDES' SHOPPE. 

CYRELD'S: That's the place where Simmons girls 
buy the clothes and hats that suit them perfectly. 
They suit because they are original. They have 
young ideas for young heads and our Susies' fun. It 
is always hard to make a choice at CYRELD'S 
because there is such an array of hats, suits and 
accessories — something for any mood, for any oc- 
casion. From the display of GYRELD specialities, 
every girl will find one costume or one outstanding 
accessory that seems to be made for her personality. 
Each Simmons Susy can walk home proudly with 
her big, exciting-looking CYRELD hat box. She 
knows her CYRELD label means smartness and 
good times ahead. 

YUEH'S: Another college tradition at Simmons 
is the CAMPUS RESTAURANT. Who could get 
started for a full day of classes without a cup of that 
steaming black CAMPUS coffee? The CAMPUS 
buns and doughnuts are a must for a pick-up in the 
afternoon. If you're looking for a friend or have 
a business deal in the ofiing, drop in at the restau- 
rant on the corner. There's always something doing 
at YUEH'S. If you want to make a supper an oc- 
casion, nine times out of ten you'll head for the 
CAMPUS' chicken chow mein or egg foo yong. 
Simmons grads will remember the CAMPUS 
RESTAURANT when they think of college. 

MICROCOSM: MIC, that's the part of college 
life that you carry away with you. You pay for it. 
You come across all the familiar faces in it. But 
what would that yearbook be without all the MIC 
staffs who make it possible year after year? They 
fight to get pictures taken, and they fight to get 
them to the printer's before the deadline. When 
MIC comes out in the spring, they can breathe for 
the first time. Another year at Simmons has been 
recorded. We salute all the MIC graduates.
